    Primer issues

    Someone on the Facebook page is saying they're having adhesion issues with base on the 2k primer. Says the base is peeling off. He said he followed mix ratios and flash times as suggested. There's a lot of unknowns but where would you start looking?

    Curing lamps

    Something has been nagging me. But, enough about my wife. If the Universal tech sheet says to bake at 110-120 for 10-15 minutes. How does this change with lamps, either med or short (there really isn't that big of a difference in the two). Is temperature as important with radiant as it is...

    Advice sought

    Noticed I didn't have coverage after first coat of clear. So, I kind of double dusted the base on after a few minutes,very few. Then, put on the next coat of clear. Well, in the touched up area, the dusted base changed orientation and stood right up. What's the prevention? Besides "make...

    Low air flow environment

    Any advantage to either one for production type work? I have been using the 6401 as a primer mixed 4:1. Is the Turbo about the same mixed 4:1:1?

    Tale of two compressors

    80 gal 17cfm Quincy 150psi at wall. 30 gal Harbor Freight 7cfm 150 psi. Same gun, same settings. Spraying at 29 psi. I get better results with the Harbor Freight tank. The Quincy looks likes the pattern is split. Any ideas why this might be happening?

    Bumper prep fail

    Two years ago I did an OEM bumper on a Honda CRV. Not exactly clear on my prep but was probably a grey pad to scuff. Don't remember if I used scuff paste. I did use epoxy sealer. That much I know. Well, the primer has let go of the plastic. Paint is sticking to the primer beautifully. Do...
